Teledyne Imaging develops custom and platform product CMOS families as well as carrying out up screening of industrial devices as part of application specific COTS+ customer requirements.
Space qualified custom and COTS+ Complimentary Metal-Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) imaging sensors or CMOS Imaging Sensors (CIS) have some obvious advantages over Charge Coupled Device (CCD) sensors such as lower power consumption, higher speed and much higher levels of integration is possible and also provides the opportunity to derive significant amounts of data, not just images, than their CCD counterparts.
Whilst Teledyne CCD technology is proven over many decades to be completely reliable for space applications and provides the required imaging performance, Teledyne’s CMOS technology is accumulating heritage in space everyday with image sensors currently flying in space.
Teledyne has extensive experience in CMOS design with a long heritage in industrial and scientific CMOS imaging applications and a large portfolio of IP blocs. Teledyne has more CMOS designers than CCD designers, by a factor of 20, and has delivered more than 1 million high performance CMOS devices.
Major development programs include hyperspectral, multispectral and CMOS TDI platform product families for line scanning in Earth observation and living planet applications and a CMOS general-purpose image sensor.
